WHAT IS HUMAN RISK?

HUMAN RISK IS ‘THE RISK OF PEOPLE DOING THINGS THEY SHOULDN’T, OR NOT DOING THINGS THEY SHOULD’ – THE LARGEST RISK FACING ORGANISATIONS.

Human Risk the company, was born of a realisation on the part of our founder Christian Hunt, that there was a disconnect between the drivers of risk within companies and the manner in which they were mitigated via Ethics & Compliance programmes.

 

When things go wrong in organisations, there is always a human component – people either cause problems or make them worse by the way in which they react to them. Yet traditional approaches to ethics & compliance, often fail to consider behavioural drivers and mitigate risk by thinking about the way we would like people to behave, rather than the way they are likely to behave.
